About Dublin

Dublin needs to examine first glance like a fairly modern city. Founded by the Vikings over 1,000 years ago (you can see the archaeological evidence, at the Dublinia Museum), the Irish capital feels like a mythic place. While you won't see the historic buildings of many other European cities, the charm of the Irish capital lies in it culture and people. Duck into one of Dublin's 600+ pubs to hear an Irish music jam session. A literary city like no other, experience Dublin literature on a literary pub crawl or visit museums dedicated to the written word. Wish to medieval illustrated manuscripts? Look at the Book of Kells at Trinity College. Want something a little more recent? The Bram Stoker Museum showcases the life of the Dracula author. Of course, Ireland wouldn’t be the same ones without its beer or whiskey, so a sojourn to the Guinness Storehouse or the Old Jamestown Distillery is a highlight. Keep up the partying in the restaurants and bars of Dublin's vibrant Temple Bar district, where you can sleep in a hotel owned by members of U2.

Popular Attractions in Dublin

Trinity College
4.5/5
285 Reviews
School
Ireland's most ancient college was founded in 1592, and to this day, it remains its most prestigious and highest-ranked academically. Trinity College - also called the University of Dublin - was constructed outside the city walls, but today is located right in Dublin´s urban heart. Counted among its alumni are Jonathan Swift, Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde, and Samuel Beckett. The campus's library is one of Europe's greatest, a repository for a wealth of research material and historical documents, as well as about 5 million books.
Phoenix Park
4.5/5
124 Reviews
City Park
Located on the north bank of the River Liffey in the northwestern part of Dublin city centre, Phoenix Park is Ireland's famous park. The park was originally built by the then Governor of the Duke of Ormonde, and was intended to cater to the glory of Charles II and the city of Dublin. After centuries of change, it still retains the characteristics of the 17th century deer park.
Guinness Storehouse
4.6/5
265 Reviews
Exhibition Hall
When you arrive in Ireland, if you want to try fresh Guinness beer, be sure to visit the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin. See for yourself the brewing process. The Guinness Storehouse was completed in 1904 and appears the architectural style of Chicago. The entire building was made of steel. Exquisite lighting design makes the entire exhibition hall shine. The beer exhibition hall has a total of eight floors and systematically introduces the beer brewing process.
Dublin Castle
4.4/5

Castle
A fortified castle has stood on this site since at least 930, and it's easy to see why: it stands on the highest ridge in the vicinity, at the junction of the River Liffey and the now-underground River Poddle, so it was a strategic place to defend. And indeed, occupants of the site had to defend it frequently: The Danish Vikings that occupied a fortress here in the 900s were defeated by the Irish the next century. By the 1100s the Irish were defeated by the Normans. The next century the English set up shop here. And so on. Thanks to all these ransackings and a few disastrous fires, little remains from those early times. Most of the current castle dates to the 1700s. Today, the 44,000 square meter castle complex contains two museums, two cafes, two gardens, government buildings, a conference center and state apartments.

Looking through the city map of Dublin, you will find a green area that is too large to be ignored. It's hard to imagine that in a capital city like Dublin, there is such a large urban leisure space green space in Phoenix Park – twice as much as New York's Central Park and five times in London's Hyde Park – all covered by woods and grass. Phoenix Park is Europe's largest urban garden. Although it houses the Irish Presidential Palace and the US Ambassador's residence, the most striking landmark is the huge cross built to commemorate Pope Paul II's visit to Ireland. The white cross of the steel structure is located on a small hill, while walking on the grass in Phoenix Park, it can be clearly seen from far away. The park was once home to the Royal Deer Park more than three hundred years ago, and it is still possible to find traces of deer in pastures and forests. However, it is very different from Nara. The deer here will never attack the tourists for food, but will be closer to the wild, and always keep vigilant against human beings. Trying to get close to them is definitely something that requires patience, respect, and strength.

Trinity College, Ireland's oldest university, and the University of Trinity College, the most cultivated university in Europe, is located in the heart of Dublin's urban area, but there are fewer guarded gates than domestic universities. There are many gates in the school. There is no security at the door. There is a lot of difference between the students in the college and the school. They will sit on the steps and talk about their interests. They will have a casual party with friends on the lawn. The atmosphere in the college is very good. Awesome, everywhere you see, there are plants, classical buildings look less than 100 years of history, the academic atmosphere is very strong, it would be a good choice to see the Europeans in Academic style.
